korean restaurant near depot road, not sure whether it's bayside yet or whatever comes before it heading east

anyone else have any experience here? mine has been uniformly excellent; best bbq i've found in the city, my taste runs to a marinade that's heavy on both sugar and garlic

kalbi jim is on the menu; usually that's a sign of a pretty serious place -- it's short ribs brewed for ages with a sweet sauce that includes things like chestnuts and carrots; it was what the 1964 NY world's fair korean pavillion zserved as kalbi because they couldn't get a permit for open grilling in the flimsy temporary building that characterized the fair (the buildings only had to last 15 months); still my favorite korean dish and a great memory (followed closely by a place called Sam Mee in chicago and a place called New Korea on 41st St east olf 5th (which had remarkable grilled meats, mespecially pork and chicken)
